System Data Invoice Priorities

Invoice Priorities allow users to set different priorities for sales orders. For example, clients commonly use 'Urgent' as a priority and assign a 'mark' to the priority, see How To: Setup Invoice Priorities.

Invoice Priorities are setup or visible in the following areas of the system:

  1. Sales Invoice Manager: the invoice priority mark is visible against the sales order in the grid allowing the order to be processed more quickly. The F4 filter button button (F4 button) can be used in the Sales Invoice Manager to filter for all invoices that contain the Invoice Priority.
  2. The Additional Details area in the [ Sales Orders | Additional ] screen is where invoice priorities can be set against the sales order. They are confirmed when the sales order is saved.
  3. Invoice Priorities can also be linked to individual users, see [ System Data | Others | Users ] so a default invoice priority will be added to every Sales Order created by the User.
  4. An Invoice Priority can be set when a delivery rate is set against a sales order, see How To: Configure Courier Services and Delivery Rates.
  5. Used as a criteria when setting up Invoice Rules, see How To: Set Up Invoice Rules.
  6. Invoice type emails can be triggered on a specific invoice priority, see How To: Setup Email Trigger Rules.

    • BtnTriStYesXP.jpg TICKED: the Order Note value will be entered in the sales order's Invoice Notes field.
    • BtnTriStNoXP.jpg UNTICKED: the Order Note value will be entered in the sales order's Delivery Note/Picking List Note field.
  • DelDate Adj (default=0): number of days to be added or removed from the delivery date when the priority is applied to a sales order.
